    If the hitch fits the 54" blade, it also fits the 47" blower. The PTO shaft from the actual front drive unit for the 1025r is different than the one on the machine for the x475.

    The blower will need the PTO shaft for your machine, it is not the same shaft as used on the x475.

    Make sure you don't use the short PTO shaft which attaches to the 47" blower and was used in the x475 on your 1025r as when raising and lowering the blower, its not the correct length. The quick hitch mounts entirely differently on the 1 series as compared to all of the GT machines like the 425, 445, 455, x4xx, x5xx, x7xx, etc. Note, the quick hitch itself is very similar and in some cases, can be used, but NOT the mount which supports the carrier bearing for the front PTO on the 1 series. On the 1 series, this is a separate bracket, on the other machines, it was incorporated through the front axle on many of the models and part of the tractor.

    When you buy the front drive unit for the 1025r, you need to specify the blower you are going to use. Seems to me the front drive unit was about $900 or $1,000 with all the pieces (from memory.....its been over a year and its still in the box) and I am NOT talking about the quick hitch itself. I am speaking about the long drive shaft from the mid PTO to the carrier bearing and components which go into the lower front mount and the short PTO shaft from the quick hitch to the blower itself......It also uses a bypass switch so the RIO is overridden, or every time you back up, the blower will shut down without this switch installed.

    No, not everything.

    I did some extensive research in the parts catalog to see what parts are required for a 1025r versus the X475.

    **** I MAKE NO GUARANTEES THAT A BLOWER FOR THE X475 WILL WORK ON THE 1025, EVEN WITH THE CORRECT PARTS FOR THE 1025. Everything I state below is based on the parts catalogs and not a real world fitment and trial. ****

    That said, there's an excellent chance that it will.

    The front bracket of the Quick Hitch, that actually hooks to the blower/blade/broom, is the same part number on the X475 and the 1025, so the blower should hook up (just like the blade does). So with that, your Quick Hitch is set to go.

    I believe 3 kits are needed for a 1025 (in addition to a Quick Hitch) for adding a blower or broom (though I'm scratching my head about LVB10793 being needed, but i think it is).

    When I looked up the auger housings, the X475 47" housing has a serial number break of -150000. The housing for -150000 is the same as listed for the 1025. I can't find the part number for the X475, serial # 150001- housing, but I'm going to guess that is should be the same or similar enough.

    Other members that own a blower or broom for their 1025 may be able shed some more light on the driveshaft kits, the physical attachment, and their thoughts on whether the X475 blower will work on the 1025, in addition to SulleyBear's comments (who is very knowledgable in these areas).

    Short of buying the driveshafts, etc. and taking everything will you to test fit on the blower, that's the best info I can give you.

    Thanks, Kyle, for the nice compliment on my knowledge on these matters. I appreciate it.....

    I have a 47" Two Stage blower from my 455 which I have set up to use on my 1025R, I have all of the stuff and you are right on the part numbers. I thought that it was right near $900 to $1,000 and your research showed the same results. The total of the parts is $1,006.28

    I have the blower and the parts kits and now in two winters, I never even opened the boxes. Perhaps I should convert that to cash as well as I use the FEL for moving the large piles if necessary......Generally, really planning ahead can eliminate much of the future need to move piles. Usually, the piles I do end up moving are those placed by others.....Like opening up all of the storm drains in the late winter, etc.

    I am thinking about cleaning house and making some space. I should sell what I don't use and don't need before building a new building to store everything in........My Harley has been in my neighbors garage now for 2 years. I haven't even looked at it. I think its still there......Maybe I should check....
